GPIOPWM(4) Kernel Interfaces Manual GPIOPWM(4) NAME gpiopwm -- support for pulsing GPIO pins in software SYNOPSIS gpiopwm* at gpio? offset ? mask 1 gpiopwm* at gpio? DESCRIPTION The gpiopwm driver allows for pulsing GPIO pins in software using the callout(9) facility. The pulse frequency and duty cycle are specified indirectly by setting an ``on'' and ``off'' period, in ticks. Both values are accessible as sysctl(3) variables. SYSCTL VARIABLES The following sysctl(3) variables are used to define the pulsing: hw.gpiopwmN.off Define the ``off'' period in ticks. hw.gpiopwmN.on Define the ``on'' period in ticks. Only when both the ``on'' and the ``off'' period are set to values higher than zero pulsing will start. To stop the pulsing, set either value to zero. EXAMPLES To pulse a pin on a machine with 100 ticks/second with a frequency of 1Hz and a duty cycle of 20%, the ``on'' period must be set to 20 and the ``off'' period must be set to 80. The following example will pulse the error LED of a Soekris net4801 with a frequency of 1 Hz and a duty cycle of 20%: # gpioctl gpio0 20 set pp # gpioctl gpio0 attach gpiopwm 20 1 # sysctl -w hw.gpiopwm0.off=80 # sysctl -w hw.gpiopwm0.on=20 SEE ALSO gpio(4), intro(4), gpioctl(8), sysctl(8) HISTORY The gpiopwm driver first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.
